Ranch Cacio e Pepe

Rated 4.8158/5 based on 38 customer reviews

This simple yet sophisticated dish is our grownup version of mac ‘n’ cheese.

This dish is inspired by our latest food obsession, the no-recipe recipe. Unlike a traditional recipe, this dish doesn’t call for a list of fixed ingredients, so you can customize it to fit your tastes. Explore all of our no-recipe recipes here, and shake up some mealtime magic, your way.

  • To get started: Bring a pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti or linguine to the pot and cook according to package directions. Save at least half a cup or so of the pasta water before draining the noodles.
  • Add the spaghetti back into the pot and stir in a generous amount of butter, a tablespoon or two of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Shaker, lots of freshly ground black pepper and a large handful of freshly grated Parmesan or Pecorino cheese. Toss well to coat, adding pasta water as necessary to make it saucy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs tweaking This had a lot of potential but sort of fell short for me. I agree with others who said this makes a good side dish, but not so much of a main entree. I would try it again using some suggestions others have made- I made it exactly as it was in the recipe, but I could see adding garlic, bacon bits, maybe crushed red pepper... it just needs a little something more to make it really pop with flavor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but kinda plain It's a good recipe, but more of a side dish to me than as a main course like mac 'n' cheese is. Tasty.
